Hi, I would be grateful to anyone who is able to give me any Identification on this bear? I recently acquired him from Bulgaria. He was described as a brown bear but he is actually a golden blonde mohair. You can see his original colour mohair under his paw pad where a hole has appeared in the fabric. He is just filthy dirty, dirt and sand is literally falling off him as I opened him up today on delivery. It’s like he was dug up out of a heap of dirt. I intended on restoring him myself but I would like to know more about him before I do. He stands about 20 inches high. Has glass eyes jointed in five places, I think these joints are card disks and pins, he is wood wool stuffed and he has a blue ribbon around his neck that is knotted far too tightly and is going to be difficult to remove, he also has a working growler. I feel he could be a German bear as he has the look, No ear button or other makers mark or pin.Thank you for any feedback you feel might help identify him.

I’m currently in the process of cleaning his mohair, turning out to be a rich golden, cinnamon colour.
